Emmy has a coiled rope wrapped “boing” that we put her on outside. She’s in an screened enclosure so she’s safe from predators. When I go for my morning swim, Emmy talks, chirps, whistles and I mimic her as I am swimming. I sketched this the other day, after my swim. Done digitally on Procreate:
Out with the sketch club tonight…..the flies were biting by the water so I sketched from the car. j
Yes! That is correct! I counted snd recounted a few days ago. I waited for today’s kitty to celebrate! It’s only 2 days short of our village’s 125th anniversary so it couldn’t have been timed better.

If Cleo only went to all the places that I have been putting her….😂 I was sitting in front of Kilwin’s and I was sketching the bell and hammer activity.
This evening I went out with my sketch club and we sketched Flo’s in Blue Point. Flo’s has grown from this location, to three locations and a food truck. Flo’s BP is a popular summer spot and we sketch there every year. I wasn’t sure if I was going to get this sketch in….the skyContinue reading “Flo’s Blue Point”
John and I went down to the bay this evening. This car was perfect for today’s kitty. We parked next to it and I whipped out the pen and postcard sized paper and sketched it. Then I added the kitty. Ps, It is a 1930-something Ford. Fully restored. It was beautiful.
